Lilac Bush Leaves Turning Yellow?

I have a Lilac bush that appears to be dying. Some of the branches look like they are just budding out. Some of the leave on the branches that have leafed out are curled, withered and even turning yellow around the edges. What few flowers that have appeared are only three or four petals in size. It is getting plenty of water, and the bush that is about ten feet away seems to be doing just fine. Any suggestions?

It could be overwatering or underwatering, as the signs are the same for both. I would take a few leaves to a local nursery. If you've been watering a lot, cut back and see how it does. You typically need only one inch of watering a week whether it's from the sky or a hose.

Check the bark. Mine had splits all down it and what looked like tiny eggs in them. Only some branches were affected at first but it spread so I sadly took it out. No idea what it was, possibly a fungus?
